I am trying to study St Paul, but get confused, not unusual for me.
So to gain insight I submitted two post here. Some answers to the first were brilliant, but in general the replies were not very helpful.
I asked about Paul considering Jesus Lord, and what did this mean? Did Paul think Jesus was God, if so why? Secondly what did he mean by Son of God. It seems Paul considered God adopted Jesus as his son.
The next received no replies. I looked at Romans and tried to find out what Paul thought of Jesus. Did he consider him the Messiah (Christ) who would save his people and redeem them, from what and why?
So let me pose another query I looked at Mark’s gospel. Did David claim that God (Lord) requested Jesus (my lord) to sit at his (God’s) right hand?
I appreciate the query. How did David call Jesus his lord? Did he just know a Messiah would come?
Comments welcome, please.
David himself, inspired by the holy Spirit, said: 'The Lord said to my lord, “Sit at my right hand until I place your enemies under your feet.”’ David himself calls him ‘lord’; so how is he his son?" [The] great crowd heard this with delight. (Mk. 12:36-37 NAB)
